Perhaps it should be embarrassing to admit that I’ve watched every single episode of “American Idol” this year and I plan to continue watching until the end. I don’t really think any of the contestants are phenomenal talents and really, if I voted it would be based on who I thought could be most tolerable in the public eye for the next two or three years. But I have gotten genuinely attached to some of the personalities and none more so than Danny Noriega. He was great every week and far and away my favorite contestant. I was sad to see you go tonight Danny, but I can’t complain since I didn’t vote to keep you on. The show won’t be the same without him although I’ve still got Brooke, Chikezie and Jason to root for.
